    380 auto 77 grain reloading

    Magtech makes a 77 grain hollow point solid copper bullet I was considering reloading for my 380 auto. The only problem is I can't seem to find any reloading information for a 77 grain bullet in a 380 auto. Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!!

    Contact Magtech and ask them, they should be able to give you their prefered load and powder. I'm betting the load data will be close to the 95gr or 100gr data due to the fact that copper is less dense then lead.

    While I was talking to Hodgdon on another matter, I asked about load data for this bullet. The rep said they wouldn't waste their time and resources on Magtech bullets. They were concerned w/ both QC and availability of bullets. They were not willing to commit lab time until these issues were addressed. In short your on your own w/ this bullet.

    Try TJConovera's, they have Berry plated 380s in stock.

    I'm confused. I would not have guessed that density would be the controlling factor over mass. Could you elaborate some?
